I dig it. Very nice addition, thanks.

More complete instructions may be available but here is a short answer.
For people who do not have many files uploaded a good method is to post a "Please Move to Old Time Radio" in the forum with a link to the file just ass you have done. The link helps administrators here easily find the file and move it.
If you upload more than 50 files you can ask for control of a collection and gain the ability to place files where you want then.

Just in case.

Better instructions from me on this file. Please save this to the
https://archive.org/details/BigBandRemotes
collection and Any other Duke Ellington collections that you may have. I think that Duke Ellington should have his own collection and I have material for it. I could do an archive project with most every show of Duke that are listed on dbetree. Duke is an important American artist.
You also should think about merging the collection:

with the collection:
https://archive.org/details/otr_bandremotes
Band remotes could stand to have the file names fixed up to see what you really have there.

CoJohn009,

Do not be discouraged. Most new users are not familiar with the procedures here.
Adding to another users upload page is not how this Internet Archive site works. This site is mostly maintained by people such as yourself who upload and then catalog their files in a manor of their choosing. Their page is theirs alone and cannot be added to by others. And the process of moving the files from Community Audio to Old Time Radio needs to be done by an administrator.

If you want to collect and properly rename all the Duke Ellington files you will need to either do it yourself or contact the person who uploaded the original shows and work with them.

To create and have control over a Duke Ellington collection you would need to upload 50 individual files and request you be made an administrator of a Duke Ellington collection. It seems a bit like cheating, but it may be allowable to download the files you want corrected, rename them in the correct manor and upload those files along with the files you already have and reach the 50 file number. No matter what, please continue to upload previously unheard files here if you can.

Perhaps some other Old Time Radio folks can help out more?
